All International Officer graduates were presented with their, Foundation sponsored, Graduate Badge to be worn on their service dress uniform.

Foundation Speaker Series Continues
Foundation Members and Friends welcomed Major- General Mike Rouleau, the Commander of the Canadian Special Operating Forces Command, to a unique evening presentation and discussion on the role and capabilities of Canadian SOF. General Rouleau spoke to the background and raison d’etre of our Special Forces and why they are considered to be a strategic enabler to the Armed Forces and the Government of Canada. rouleau Relaxed and informal in his delivery, General Mike afforded all attendees the opportunity to ask a wide array of questions, all of which he was able to answer within the limitations of such a setting. Without a doubt, morale was high by the end of the evening and one more room full of Canadians left with a much clearer understanding of this vital aspect of our Armed Forces.
